The LBG is a non-invasive technology that produces low current negatively charged light photons which have a beneficial ionizing action on the fluids of the body particularly in areas where acids and toxins have become congested causing pain, stiffness or edema.  For more info

The glass heads are placed against the skin in the log-jam areas contributing to the lymphatic congestion.

1.  What health problems does the LBG address?  The fluid, which bathes all the cells of our body, is called lymph.  This fluid needs to keep flowing, removing toxins and cellular wastes and bringing needed nutrients to the cells.  Like a watershed the lymph flows from the extracellular matrix to collection sites (lymphangia), which collect into larger pipes (lymphatic channels), which pass through the lymph nodes for scrubbing and eventually back into the veins and the circulatory system.  Meanwhile nutrient bearing lymph escapes from the capillaries to fill in the extracellular matrix with nutrients.  This flow can become clogged at any level and for many reasons.  The result is cellular deterioration, swelling, pain, and, if toxins are present, possibly cancer.  These problems can be years in the making resulting in creeping and chronic muscle soreness, pain and eventual debility, lymph swellings, lymph node soreness and the creating of the needed conditions for cancer to appear.

2.  Why herbs alone don’t resolve the problem?  Because stagnation exists in the removal of the cellular wastes, the watershed becomes stagnant and the inflow of nutrients is stalled.  If topical liquid enzymes (Nature’s Fresh (#9834-7)) give temporary pain relief, there is likely surface lymphatic stagnation.

3.  What does the LBG do? The LBG puts a charge on the stagnated debris and causes them to separate because they are similarly charged.  This causes larger ‘clumps’ of debris to break up into smaller particles which can more easily navigate through the lymphatic channels.  The ionizing action appears to break up the log jam and encourage lymph fluid flow and thus local drainage of the water shed.

4.  How to use the LBG.  This is an easy-to-use device.  It looks like a suitcase with 2 glass heads attached to long cords.  The device just needs to be plugged in and turned on.  You’ll hear a faint beeping sound which will sequence through three different tones.  You may be able to see a faint blue light emanating from the glass heads.  The glass heads are placed on the skin in specific locations where stagnations are occurring following a standard or tailored protocol.

    Dear Dr Block,
    I have a swollen lymph node on my neck. A fine needle biopsy confirmed it is non-cancerous. I read a lot about the light beam generator. I realized it is a wonderful tool to have even if one doesn’t have swollen / blocked lymph nodes and so I purchased a machine. It is a used machine and didn’t come with a manual if there was any at all even when the machine was brand new.
    Is there any way you could tell me how to use it? Or just connect the lamps to the main unit and turn the machine on? Where do I need to place the lamps exactly? To the actual blocked lymph node or just below the 2 shoulder-bones (where the lymphatic ducts are)?
    Thank you so much,
    Best of Health,

    My mum has just started using an LBG for oedema in her arm – I was just wondering how often it can/should be used? And also if you could tell me where I could find the topical enzymes by nature’s fresh? I cant find them. We thought my mum had post-herpetic neuralgia after shingles but now are thinking it might be that she has such an excess of lymphatic fluid…

    Thank you so much.

    Best wishes,

      Hey Annabelle,
      No, you cannot over use it UNLESS your liver is congested, in which case, nausea and fever will occur. It is best to decongest the liver (and of course stop congesting it by strictly following this diet).
      I get my liquid enzymes from Nature’s Sunshine and the products they sell in the UK can be found by following these instructions.
      If the unit heats up it is good to give it a cool down before using again.
